It is one of the first games to include a level editor, a feature that allows players to create their own levels for the game. This feature bolstered the game's popularity, as magazines such as Computer Gaming World held contests to see who could build the best level. The prototype of what later became Lode...

"Battle Chess is a quite typical chess game, but it comes with a twist: all pieces are represented by small, realistic figures that walk around on the chessboard, and when one piece takes another, they both take part in an animated battle. There is a different animation for each permutation, depending on which pieces are capturing or being captured. You can also play in 2D without animation. The game's opening library includes 30,000 different moves, ensuring a variety of games will unfold...

From Compute! magazine, March 1985: Run For The Money promises to be "a fast-paced arcade game to challenge strategy and business skills." This promise is largely kept. In addition to being an entertaining game, it is also educational.     The element that sets Run For The Money apart from other arcade-style games is the challenge to make meaningful decisions when faced with sometimes bewildering information. Players are forced to make choices they will either gain by or suffer for....

SmoothTalker was the 1980's best voice synthesizer and it was running on any Macintosh from even the very first one in 1984.  SmoothTalker could read long text documents with variable sentence length, paragraphs and punctuations.  SmoothTalker would adapt the voice pitch, stress and inflections through around 1200 rules based on punctuations and such.  Can you believe nowadays that such an incredible piece of software, complete, was less than 200KB in size? Version 1.0 from 1984 is the...

"Glider has a very simple concept, as many early Mac games did, but it was brilliantly executed and is still enjoyable to play today. I realised yesterday that I love the feel of old games like Glider because you can tell that they made the graphics on a computer not that dissimilar to the one you're playing it on! You can see all the familiar MacPaint patterns in the graphics - check out the 'brick' pattern wearing through the wall (with a bit of the spray-paint tool for good measure) in...
